Turkey fly?
It reminds me of a turkey, but in black and white unlike this turkey-themed bug:

very cool
I think your Otiocerus degeeri is much more turkey-like. Great shot!

Not mine

I did find some picture-winged flies last month. I clicked yours to see if it was the same as mine. (Different genus.)
